Andy Smith is an illustrator with skills. His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism, and all are executed with a hand-made, hand-printed, tactile feel. He designed these four mugs for his friends at outdoor company Alpkit. Each mug shows a creature tangling with explorers. I love them.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
